Celebrating the Sangha and the Can-Do Spirit!

The United States of America declared her Independence from the Great Britain on July 4, 1776. Each year, we celebrate the gift of freedom with a great joy and excitement in our hearts. Her twin flame, India, won her freedom also from the British on August 15, 1947. Here are two world’s greatest democracies side by side—one oldest with 239 years of history in the making and the other the largest with a diverse population of 1.21 billion and growing. On the global scene, both these nations stand as ‘Twin Pillars of Freedom.’
In his dictation given in 1959, Saint Germain said, “Each nation has a divine plan of its own to fulfill and, according to their divine destinies, the various nations of the world represent the various parts of the earth’s body. Therefore, in the new age, the land of India shall represent the “head” of such an ‘earth body’ and the land of America the ‘heart.’
Saint Germain continues, “Take notice, please, that the name ‘India’ begins with the letter ‘I’ and ‘America’ with ‘Am.’ Is this not significant?” (Saint Germain, Pearls of Wisdom, vol. 2, no. 20, May 22, 1959)
This is indeed a very significant statement. The foundation of the teachings of the ascended masters is truly based on the understanding of the ‘I AM’ and the I AM affirmations that we have been taught in our organization.
India and America are both nations sponsored by the Great White Brotherhood. “White,” of course, is referring to the aura of light, not race. In fact, Ascended Master Chananda is the Chief of the Indian Council of the Great White Brotherhood and he is particularly interested in bringing about a golden-age government based on the principles behind the Constitution of the United States, and he is concerned with problems of racial and religious divisions between people.
India and the US are natural partners and a strengthened US-India strategic partnership is needed in bringing permanent peace and stability to the world. The United States leads the world in technology, finance and business. She has a First World trade profile which is measured by massive exports of consumer and technology goods and imports of natural resources.
India demonstrates an amazing freedom of religion. While 83% of the people are Hindu, 11% are Muslim. That may seem small, but 11% of 1.21 billion is 110 million people. In addition, there are Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and others.
India’s young population, coupled with the second-largest English-speaking population in the world, could give India an advantage over China. Some experts believe that while other industrial countries will face a youth gap, India will have lots of young people, or in other words, workers, and by 2050, its per capita income will rise by twenty times its current level. According to them, another strength that India has is that its democratic government has lasted for 60 years, stating that a democracy can provide for long-term stability that has given India a name.
While India’s potential for growth is great, it still faces many problems such as pervasive rural poverty, entrenched corruption, and high inequality just to name a few. However, it is noted that India has made tremendous strides to fix this, stating that some of India’s achievements, such as working to dismantle the centuries-old caste system and maintaining the world’s largest diverse democracy is historically unprecedented.
Because of this, many observers believe that India will emerge as a desirable, entrepreneurial resource and energy-efficient superpower in the near future. They predict that India will overtake China to be the fastest growing economy in the world and emerge as a full-fledged economic superpower by 2025.
We see a great potential for Chananda’s dream and all of ours becoming real. We pray that all that the divine blueprint holds for the victory of our beloved planet into the great golden age through the hearts of these twin flame nations may truly come to pass by God’s grace!
